Software Products

Princeton Satellite Systems, Inc. has been developing state-of-the-art software tools for the aerospace industry since 1995. Our commercial software ranges from MATLAB toolboxes to extensible aerospace simulations and complete flight software for satellites. Our products are listed below; for our software development and training services, see our Software Services page.

MATLAB® Toolboxes and Consulting

Our toolbox suite includes the Aircraft Control Toolbox (ACT), Spacecraft Control Toolbox (SCT), Launch Vehicle Toolbox (LVT), CubeSat Toolbox, and Wind Turbine Control Toolbox (WCT). We are a Mathworks partner and can provide MATLAB consulting in any application area.

Simulation Framework and VisualCommander

Our Simulation Framework is an extensible, cross-platform simulation and control environment using our DSim and ControlDeck libraries. Our VisualCommander client for Mac provides visualization and merges data acquisition from the simulation with your legacy tools or hardware using plugins. At Princeton Satellite Systems, we use DSim and VisualCommander to support all of our research projects. Customers can develop for DSim themselves or PSS can provide consulting services to develop additional models and plugins.

ControlPlan - Decision Support

ControlPlan is cutting-edge decision support software that generates courses of action for operators of highly constrained, complex systems. The computationally intensive aspects of planning are automated, freeing the operators to focus on comparing alternative plans.


MatrixLib™ is a C++ implementation of one and two dimensional matrices. This library provides an easy to use matrix "class" with an extensive body of functions and operations and is ideal for science and engineering applications.

iPhone Apps

Princeton Satellite Systems currently has two iPhone Applications available on the Apple App Store. ChessNotePad provides an elegant means for serious chess players to record and playback their games. Outer Space Defense is an game designed to teach relative orbit dynamics, pitting your mastery of spacecraft orbital control and prowess with a laser against multiple attacking enemy satellites.
